    I have implemented a TileView which has items which contains further TileViews. Currently I'm creating the TileViews and the TileViewItems dynamically from code behind and that looks absolutely great! (Good work!) But now I'm dreaming of manipulating the tree behind. Think of a class like this...

    public class MyItem 
      string _shortDescription; 
      string _detailedDescription; 
      ArrayList _childItems; // which contains more items 

    And now I have the idea to show it like this:
    Header of the TileViewItem: the short description

    SmallContent: showing the detailed description
    Content: A list of short descriptions from all child items
    LargeContent: a TileView showing recursively all it's children as TileViewItems

    I have absolutely no idea how to do this using data binding. First question: is this possible? and second: how? :-)

    Thanks in advance,

    Hi Jan,

    We have created an example that shows how to achieve the needed task using HierarchicalDataTemplates and RadFluidContentControl.

    Please let us know if you need more info.
